30-minute weekly radio program for January 26, 2010.
"I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce" -- Paul Simon, "A Simple, Desultory Philippic"
"This show is all about Lenny Bruce. Well, not just about Lenny. It's also about obscenity, American-style. Dirty words, oral sex, and the fatal stabbing of two women--one in Brentwood, one in the Bates Motel. All of the above, and Lenny Bruce too, are intricately connected."
Featuring a handful of Lenny's greatest routines, recorded 1962-64. (Sorry: no room this week for "Christ and Moses." Soon, though!) [Update: "Christ and Moses" appears in installment #106, "The Second Coming.")
